The short inspired by another short, Merchants of Quietus. The film is in the last stages of post production and here at LR, we thought we’d put a little spotlight on our little baby. Oh how they grow so fast. Stay tuned to the happenings of the project here as it progresses: www.facebook.com/merchantsofquietus Hit ‘LIKE’ a man if you could so kindly :)

There’s also an open FB group: www.facebook.com/groups/merchantsofquietus

Stop by, have some cake and die. With anticipation. For new updates. Which will be regular mind you. Next up is a breakdown of the cast and crew.

Again thank you for the major support. I has been a long year, but the tortoise support is way better than the fleeting bugs bunny approach. We’re getting closer, ever so closer to #ELE.

And on an off note, hearts go out to people in Boston and Texas. Something very creepy is in the wind.

The Lazarus Complex…

Like playing with matches, lighting brambles to keep warm, sometimes things spread with epic proportions and consume forests of thought.

Originally I had planned to create a short that provided some back story to the Lazarus phenomena that would be more on the spy/thriller paradigm, but after great consideration, failed attempts at securing actors and redrafts, I felt I would need to treat this film with more care and the only way I could do that was to sever it from being a part of the Lazarus Rising‘s canon. Main reason being, the storyline, not having the brazen impact of horror, but more of the tension and subtlety  you would find in you favourite spy /thriller, I felt warping the script to fit the Lazarus Rising‘s paradigm would be too much of a restriction rather than a bolstering element.

So when all is said and done, Merchants of Quietus will be treated as a film in itself, rather than a promo for Lazarus Rising. But this entry is to just brandish the flag and show the origins of this short’s short. Bringing life to other ideas. As a creative it is just a great experience seeing something you create transform and grow, and creative 101 has to be never be too married to an idea. At times the very thing you consider to be a strength turns out to be a hinderance.

We filmed MOQ on the 15th of February, and it was a good set, with some amazing talent to say the least. Some known personally to me. Others I’ve met for the first time. My humble thanks for helping out, gang.

A website/Facebook page for the short will be set up, so be sure to look out for that in the coming weeks. I’ll put a link up for you all to see soon enough so you can have a look at recce/production pics and story art. Til then, stay tuned and continue to spread the word of Lazarus Rising like a plague.

We make our stand here. Hamburger Hill.
